Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Not much to discuss in terms of site news as everyone is getting ready for E3 2012. If you wanted to know the Trackmania 2 TNT this week was recorded in the Quick Look room because the Gamespot Live set has been sent to their E3 booth. Also if you missed the TNT this week it featured a one, Matthew Rorie. No news on what he's doing, but yes he sounds like he's fine. Best wishes and good luck to all of the unemployed workers of 38 Studios, including but not limited to Rich Gallup and Ben Coello. Finally special thanks to whoever uploaded all of the Unarchived Retro Gaming Marathon from 2010 to YouTube in three parts:

Fantastic Forum Posts
Special thanks to Hamst3r for making and encouraging some true nightmare fuel on the forums with his Makeover thread...honestly I think that's about all I want to say about that. If you have any funny or crazy E3 predictions head on over to the E3 2012 predictions thread so later you can say how right your were about various "groundbreaking" announcements. Finally where do you stand on the issue of eating a friend's leg as described on the Bombcast? Vote on the poll!
